with reporters. peter alexander is live at romney headquarters if boston. peter, what's the vibe there? >> reporter: s.e., we can show you live pictures of what's happening right now. mitt romney is touching down in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. you noted the earlier stop in ohio. it was the romney campaign plan for him to go to ohio. governor romney said as long as they're out there, why don't we find another place to stop as well? that's where they came up with pennsylvania. this is significant because one of those states, ohio with 18 electoral votes, is a place he showered with attention. pennsylvania is one that he has largely ignored. here campaign advisers continue to be exceedingly confident he'll do well tonight. i spoke to a source close to the campaign a few minutes ago who said vadz is the lynchpin this evening. it's one of the first states to report back at 7:00 whenle polls close, and they say that's a place to give them a better sense of which direction this night will go. it's a state that the republicans know that they need to win tonight. beyond that advisers say that gov
hoped for. msnbc's chris jansing is outside headquarters in boston. it's eerie how quiet it is. there's nothing going on behind you. that's not the way they thought this was going to be the morning after the election. >> to say the least. and you mentioned mitt romney had spent almost seven years for president. it was over in about five minutes. a short of gracious concession speech. but that was preceded, chuck, by 90 of what were thought to be bizarre minutes where the media called for barack obama. and some for mitt romney said they would contest it there. at one point ryan got in his van and returned to the hotel. there was a question even when they said he was coming over here to make remarks whether it would be a concession speech. about an hour and a half after the networks called it, the mitt romney did call the president and then came into this ballroom for what i said was a very brief and very gracious final comment. so after one of the most -- the most expensive presidential race in history and one of the most acrimonious, mitt romney called for unity. >> the nation as you
if it's needed. i know the republican governor there is pressuring, there's pressure on boston, if it qualifies for a recount they would like the romney folks not ask for one. >> well, that's some real reporting. thank you very much, chuck todd, as always. joining me now, chris cillizza, msnbc political analyst. chris cillizza, what about the fiscal cliff and negotiations? what do you think the president is doing and planning and how engaged personally will he be in trying to avoid what obviously is a messy way to start a second term? >> well i think that chuck is right, there are still -- they are making sure that everyone on their team is kind of decided where they want to go. my guess would be, andrea, he's actually pretty engaged only because he's learned the lessons of his first term particularly on health care where it was sort of a well let's let congress work its will and we'll step in and get a bill together and get something done. obviously that process took a lot longer than the white house would have liked. it was significantly more contentious than the white house
the numbers? are they pumping it out systematically, professionally? >> my guess is somebody in boston is trying to do this, but i will say this, looking at the numbers and looking at the battleground states, we felt very good going into this race last night. if you look at the stability in this race over the last two or three weeks, i think it certainly favored the president in a big way. we woke up this morning, chris, with nine battleground states, and we've had nine battleground states for months, and there's not one state of those nine that the romney people thought this morning was definitely put away for them. so, look, we've got a lot more paths to 270 than they do as chuck talked about. i feel very, very good right now. i will say this, you started the show by exhorting people to get out there and exercise their right to vote. look, get out there, stand in line, if you're in line when the polls close, they'll have to let you vote. so go out there and make sure that your voice is heard. it's way too important to sit this one out. get in line, have your voice heard. if you're th
at mitt romney's head quarters in boston. nbc's ron allen outside city hall in new jersey. here in the northeast, of course more than 1 million homes and businesses remain without power and tomorrow night's anticipated nor'easter still on track to hit the same areas as sandy hit, those already displaced by the storm are bracing for yet another blow. more power outages potentially, more coastal flooding. here in new york city fema is considering bringing in trailers and prefab houses after the hurricane. katrina, more than 20,000 people are homeless. on the jersey shore homeowners working away at clearing out muddy water and sand that's enveloped their homes, all this as voting is getting under way and as we say ron allen is in hoboken new jersey outside city hall. let's talk about the cleanup and how it's affecting the voting, ron. >> well, the ta got off to a rough start in some places like here in hoboken, for example, there are instances of voting sites that didn't have power, that needed generators or they had generators, didn't have fuel. a similar situation out in staten i
. amtrak will offer limited service between new york city and boston today. the new york city subway system is slowly coming back to life. the m-train, which links queens to manhattan actually started running. manhattan remains in the dark. with little mass transit folks are turning to their cars and you know what that means. lots of gas lines. they extend for miles. according to the most recent report from triple-a, of the gas stations it monitors roughly 60% of stations in new jersey and 70% on long island were closed thursday. both of new jersey's senators are now asking president obama for emergency fuel supplies. we do have a presidential campaign to cover. we are in the last 72, 96 hours if you will. the final chapter of the 2012 campaign is now begun and it all comes down, it apparently changed to ohio which president obama and governor romney, ready for this, are going to visit six separate times in the last four days of the break. today is the first day. president obama spends the entire day in ohio. he's got stops in springfield, lima, hilliard in franklin county which has voted f

, florida. there's boston, massachusetts. there's the san francisco bay area. there is seattle, up in washington state. there's san diego. there's tampa, florida in the st. petersburg area. there's baltimore, maryland. there's the virginia beach area, that metro area including norfolk. there is jacksonville, florida. and, of course, there is new orleans. so pop quiz. what do all of these large american cities have in common? you can cheat by looking at this map. what do all of these large american population centers have in common? the answer is that all of these major american cities are right on the edge of america. right on the coastal edge, up next to the sea. now, you could also add even some more major cities to this list if you wanted to. places like philadelphia or washington, d.c. or houston or providence, rhode island. those are all sort of coastal cities, too, in the sense that they are near the coast and they're on waterways. just for the sake of argument, let's not even include those. let's just be narrowly focused here, talking narrowly about big populous metropolitan
of the northeast right now from philly to boston, we've got live pictures as i mentioned on the left, top of the rock where we are right now. normally seeing the entire new york city skyline. you can't see a thing. on the right side, that's point pleasant, new jersey. we know that's one of the communities still dealing with tremendous damage as a result of hurricane sandy. the nor'easter is expected to hit full force tonight. more than 600,000 people are right now still without power and the storm could cause even more outages. plow crews are on stand by. flights in and out of airports in the northeast being canceled. forecasters expect high winds, heavy rain and snow and eight to 12-foot waves along the coast. incredible. >>> and back to toll picks and article says republicans are facing a crisis. the country's growing less white and the coalition more white. republican jonathan, democrat chris and real clear politics erin mcpike will join me next. plus, today's gut check. here it is for you to answer today. a lot of you on twit we are the thoughts. just explode. do you think the preside
final frenzy, that last bit of energy now that boston these candidates are giving it with just three days to go. let's go over the president's schedule. he started in ohio. they are in milwaukee at this point waiting for the president. he's airborne heading in that direction towards wisconsin. iowa and virginia. he end up in virginia and northern virginia tonight. i'll be out there accompanied by the dave matthews band. i'm looking forward to it. tomorrow sunday in new hampshire. florida. ohio. back to ohio and colorado. monday wisconsin, guess where, ohio after that. and then iowa before he finishes up in chicago where he will spend election eve. ohio we should mention nbc news and the marist organization yesterday put out their poll for ohio has the president up six. a whopping margin compared to what we've seen in the past. our poll even has the president up two in florida. so the obama team certainly optimistic and down the stretch they come to keep that sports metaphor going. >> love it. thank you. >> as for the challenger mitt romney needs to rally his troops and out gun the p
christie that some top advisers at the campaign's boston headquarters believe believed the governor had been offered the job. oh, i get it, so the reason chris christie was so friendly to the president last week was sour grapes? even by the standards of the romney campaign, that's low. joining me now is national political reporter for the washington post and jonathan cape hart, msnbc contributor. thanks to both of you pour being here tonight. >> good to be here. >> why are republicanes so upset over chris christie's praise for the president sp. >> chris christie was romney's number one attack dog. number one surrogate going around attacking the president in harsh terms. three, he was the keynote speaker at mitt romney's convention. i think for republicans to see governor christie not just compliment the president on how, you know, good a job he is doing in helping the people in the state of new jersey, but press conference after press conference, complimenting the president and his leadership skills, his, you know, ability to work with the president, how much he loves the guy, that is p
, and everybody -- not only at this network, at nbc, abc, cbs, in boston, in austin, all talking about president kerry. that was two hours before the polls closed. >> bob shrum. >> everybody knew that john kerry had won the race. everybody. let me repeat. everybody. two hours before. and then we all remembered what happened in new hampshire when everybody was dancing on hillary clinton's grave. >> oh, my god. >> the day of the new hampshire primary. >> let's look at primary crowds. >> mika and i, we're at a nashua gym and saw hillary up there speaking. >> they were, like, bringing people in from out of state. >> everybody came in from massachusetts. and i said, you know, she deserves a better ending than this. and yet, you never know until americans go into the voting booth and vote. >> well, i recall in new hampshire in february of 2008 being in the lobby of the holiday inn with you and telling you that i had just bumped into lou dellesandrou who was running hillary's campaign. >> and everybody laughed. >> everybody did laugh. that gets to the ultimate magic and mystery that is election day. th
monday forecast, one more nice, beautiful day from boston down to d.c. falling temperatures in the middle of the country. the northwest is also stormy. as far as the cleanup from that nor'easter and of course our historical superstorm sandy, it looks like it's going to be pretty nice much of this week. temperatures not too cold, not too chilly for this time of year. so that will continue. there's no storms on the way for the battered east coast. a little bit of low fog there over lower manhattan. you're watching "morning joe" on this monday. we're brewed by starbucks. ♪ ♪ [ multiple sounds making melodic tune ] ♪ [ male announcer ] at northrop grumman, every innovation, every solution, comes together for a single purpose -- to make the world a safer place. that's the value of performance. northrop grumman. gives you a low national plan premium... so you can focus on what really matters. call humana at 1-800-808-4003. but some things never get old... marie callender's dutch apple pie with fresh fuji apples and a crust made from scratch... it makes home at the holidays even sweeter. m
between new york city and boston. and new jersey transit will also start moving today with limited service. the new york subway system continues to make advances. the "m" train linking queens to manhattan just started running, but there are still no trains running below 34th street where half of manhattan remains in the dark. so the millions of new yorkers who depend on subways, they're now waiting in those long lines for buses. for those who drive into new york city, the lines at city bridges stretched for miles yesterday, enough to make you turn around and just stay home. it's simply not worth it. it will take all day to get in in some cases. in an effort to ease gridlock inside the city, the mayor has ordered all vehicles entering manhattan to have at least three passengers for the rest of the week. there are checkpoints set up on the way into manhattan with cars not meeting the three-person rule, those cars turned away. and you're only beginning to make your way into new york if you're lucky enough to find gas for your cars. about 80% of new jersey stations are either without power or
for unity in boston. >> at a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work and we citizens have to rise to the occasion. >> but will they? can the two sides come together? plus, more women entered the all men's club. mostly men's club. >> you've elected first woman senate from the state of massachusetts. >> a record-setting number of women senators. in new hampshire, the governor, both senators, and the house members, now all women. and they're still counting votes in florida. not again. nine days after sandy's, the east coast is getting another had hit, a powerful nor'easter, threatening to cause new flooding and power outages in the same areas battered by the hurricane. good day. i'm andrea mitchell, the day after, live in new york. what many expected to be a close contest ended as a resounding electoral college win for president obama. after a hard-fought race spanning two years, so what should we now expect from a second term? joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor
, their boston headquarters. wrap your head around that. karl rove whose failure to win victories at the helm of the cross roads had this defense on tuesday. >> he succeeded by suppressing the vote, by saying to people, you play not like who i am and i know you can't bring yourself to vote for me, but i'm going to paint this other guy as simply a rich guy who only cares about himself. >> remember the team romney and the republicans outspent team obama the democrats in the last three months of this campaign. actually in the entire campaign. >>> while president obama is already getting knee deposition in the second term issue, the fiscal cliff, he also had some house keeping to do in his cabin cabinet, mainly replacing a handful of high profile secretaries, including hillary clinton, tg, tim geithner, leon panetta. they're all expected to leave sometime in the next few months, possibly, even before the end of the year. secretary of state hillary clinton repeatedly said she's on her way out. >> i want to then take some time to get reconnected to, you know, the stuff that makes life worth living.
of the boston globe and ashley parker of the "new york times." ashley, thank you so much. you were right in there. give me the tick tock. tell me the mood tuesday night because it seemed to me there was some amazing time before -- between when we called it here at nbc around between when we c here on msnbc, around 11:20 and when the loser came out and talked, mitt romney. >> sure. it came from extreme confidence to sort of extreme shell shocked at the very end when he came out to speak. in between, there was sort of this weird moment of what's going to happen? all of these aides have been told to show up with packed bags and ready to go in case there was going to be a recount. they said, take your bags, bring them outside of the garden. we're taking them to the airport and you guys are going to be on the first flights out to virginia and ohio and obviously that was called off. >> and then there was a point when the presidential candidate mitt romney said it's gone? >> yeah. so he was not watching tv, actually. he was in a room with his family, his five sons, the daughter-in-laws and he w
two of these political reporters with me tonight. matt viser from "the boston globe" and ashley parker of the "new york times." ashley, thank you so much. you were right in there. give me the tick tock. tell me the mood tuesday night because it seemed to me there was some amazing time before -- between when we called it here at nbc around 11:00, a little after 11:00, 11:20, and when the after 11:00 and when the loser came out and talked, romney. >> it went from extreme confidence to extreme shell shocked at the very end when he came out to speak. in between, there was this weerld moment of what's going to happen. all the aids have been told to show up with packed bags ready to go in case there was a recount. there was a call that said there was going to be a recount in virginia or ohio. bring your bags outside of the garden. we're taking them to the airport and you'll be on the first flights out to virginia and ohio. and obviously, that was called off. >> then there was a point where the presidential candidate himself governor romney came outside and said it's gone? >> i mean, so he wa
more from the romney campaign. he's at their headquarters in boston. around this time yesterday, peter, we gotd word governor romney would go to pittsburgh as well as ohio and then added in virginia, three states in these final hours, the 11th hour. what's behind the strategy? >> reporter: well, it's interesting. if you didn't know that governor romney is not a sports fan, you'd think he was the head coach of a football team with the language thrown around by romney advisers today. they say governor romney himself wanted to leave it all on the field. he didn't want to look back with any regret at the end of the game. governor romney we are told, initially the plan was by the campaign, for him to make na stop in ohio today. you see the pictures of him aalongside his running mate, paul ryan. an opportunity for a photo op. they say he's the one that said as long as we're out there, i insist on going to another place. where else can we go? that's why they'll stop in pennsylvania later today. romney on the ground in ohio having a chance to thank volunteers at a campaign offices, what they c
there in boston covering the race. dave, thanks for joining us from politico. >> absolutely. >> let me ask you about that race. it seems like something happened a couple weeks ago. was it the mayor's endorsement and putting all the troops? but that's only 8% of the electorate. what got her on top of the race? >> i think it's women voters that were in brown's camp, still sort of flirting with him this summer in polls, moving towards warren, and i talked to some pollsters and voters on the ground today, and that's all you hear about on the airwaves, in the messaging. it's all designed to court women voters. some of them declaring themselves independents, although democrats have a big registration advantage up here 3 to 1, but i think if you look inside the polls, that's what's given warren the lead. brown still beats her among independents overall, but he's losing female voters. she has widened the gender gap. >> you're going to have a big turnout. not like january of 2010 when he won that first time. here are the closing ads from warren and brown. first up, warren's. let's listen. >> for all th
strange. >> here is why the romney campaign in boston probably is uncomfortable with what chris christie was doing. he was their number one attack dog. remember, he was the keynote speaker at the convention. he was the one that was able to not only throw the red meat and then stand in front of the crowd an just tear it apart and everyone would cheer and scream. and hurricane sandy comes threw, and he is gone. he is not filling that role anymore hi, see also the guy who in that keynote speech could barely bring himself to say mitt romney's name. it wasn't like he was the most ardent romney lover. >> and even when he was -- he was one of the first guys out of the gate to endorse romney, which i think is surprising. constitutionally they seem like such different people. i have been saying for a while on the show, and i believe this is true. you know, part of my problem with mitt romney's candidacy is i feel he has an incredibly crass view of the american public, and really doesn't hold them in particularly high regard in so far he has changed his position on all of these issues numerous tim

the presidency may end tomorrow night at the boston convention center. you can see some of the exhaustion show. romney's demeanor hinting at anything? that he somehow thinks he might not get there? >> you're tired of being tired. not just tonight but all the time. >> people overreading body language a little bit. after reports ann romney appeared exhausted at a series. one of mrs. romney's aides wanted to assure nbc news it's about being tired, nothing about her ms acting up. on the trail this in virginia, mitt romney argued that he is the changed candidate this year. >> instead of bridging the divide, he's made it wider. >> if the president were to be re-elected, he would -- it's possible but not likely. if he were to be re-elected, he would be able to work with president in congress. >> the bitterness between the two campaigns is palpable. there are signs that governing will be a huge challenge for the winner. protesters interrupted the president's rally in ohio and at every stop romney seized on this recent comment from the president. >> don't boo, vote. vote. voting's the best revenge. >>
, politics and public policy. good afternoon to boston you. >> hi there. >> doug i'll start with you. we pay attention to the presidential candidates. generally speaking how much of an impact can something like a fight over judges, how much of an impact can something like this happen when it comes to voter turnout? >> kit have a huge impact especially on the local level and in this case on state level. what's at stake here are a couple of things. first of all to what degree will the supreme court remain independent from either political party. in florida, in the '70s they stopped voting for supreme court justice and they were being afrointd a nominating list that the governor then would appeal to in order to appoint the justices and then they stood for retention. the coke brothers another far right-wing group here have tar get these particular justices because they want to really impose willy-nilly their will upon florida. you know, they control the legislature, they control the governor's office now they want to control the supreme -- now t will be overloaded with people who can be appointe
